Title: FW: I-D Action:draft-hammer-discovery-01.txt

   o  Rename 'resource discovery' to 'descriptor discovery'.

   o  Added informative reference to Metalink.

   o  Clarified that the resource descriptor URI can use any URI scheme,
      not just 'http' or 'https'.

   o  Removed comment regarding redirects when using <LINK> Elements.

   o  Clarified that HTTPS must be used with 'https' URIs for both Link
      headers and Site-Meta retrieval.

   o  Removed DNS verification step for Site-Meta with schemes other
      then 'http' and 'https'.  Replaced with a general discussion of
      authority and a security consideration comment.

   o  Organized Site-Meta section into another sub-section level.

   o  Enlarged the template vocabulary from a single 'uri' variable to
      include smaller URI components.

   o  Added informative reference to RFC 2295 in analysis appendix.

about a resource identified by a URI.  The 'information about a
resource' - a resource descriptor - typically provides machine-
readable information that aims to assist and enhance the interaction
